No.

Keep all your files.

But keep your data and your code separate.

Remove the code from your scripts because it doesn't belong. Remove everything before __DATA__.

Rename your .pl templates to .lat or .dat

Collapse any other page specific code needed into subroutines inside a module.

This is all that should be in your master script

use lib ...; use MyStuff; MyStuff::run_cgi( '/path/to/root/or/config/if/nonstandard' );

Eventually get inspired by https://metacpan.org/release/Template-TT2Site/tt2site and make the dynamically generated static parts of your site truly static

    I intend to keep all the text in the __DATA__ fields, but not in their current directories. I am not sure what the difference is between me leaving the files in place and renaming them or moving the text to a new directory with a similar new filename.

    ./Collections/Fiction.pl # to ./Collections/Fiction.txt # or ./files/text/Collections/Fiction.txt

    Leaving them in place would mean adding another grep to exclude all .txt files in the directories in base_menu along with initial lower case files. I'm having difficulty rewriting base_menu for the new structure I am contemplating.

    I think .dat would expand to "data", so what would .lat expand to be? I am curious.

    My OS is Debian 10 (Buster); my perl versions are 5.28.1 local and 5.8.8 on web host.

    Version control is a non-issue, I do not use it.

    No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!
